The real advantage is not having all your BIM project documents on the cloud, but creating and editing them online, directly on the platform.
In BIM project management processes, there are so many documents that need to be prepared (meeting notes, minutes, reports, checklists, etc). Each of these accompany the project during project development and need to be sent off and shared with other co-workers, contractors, the client and the various stakeholders even if they’re not in the office, for example on site or travelling.
With usBIM, collaboration becomes simple and straight-forward. In fact, you can:
- manage all BIM project documents in one place on the cloud, improving the efficiency of the BIM Management process and facilitating rapid access to information at any time and from any device;
- get an intelligent and seamless control over documentation by defining user-access levels distributing roles and permissions (user access control and logging audit);
- get an advanced file versioning system to be sure you’re always working on the latest version of a document, but also keep track of the revisions history, checking out modifications and updates to each document;
- benefit from high levels of data security with automatic backup and disaster recovery systems.
But a CDE can offer true added value in document management when it also allows you to work on documents, even without classic word processor software.
With usBIM.writer and usBIM.office, usBIM allows you to create and edit text files, tables, slides etc. directly in the cloud, without having to download them locally, but directly from your browser even if you’re using your tablet or smartphone!
